I knew it!

Thursday, August 25, 2005

Yep, I'm wishing I had run hills. I had my first taste of the mile repeats today. They suck big time. They're super fun! Mile 1: 10:20 (way too fast) Mile 2: 10:48 Mile 3: 11:00 Mile 4: 10:48 Mile 5: 10:45 Mile 6: 10:34 These are all actually a little fast, but hey, better than slow. Total of 6 miles in 1:04:05 (if my math is right, which it may not be), with an average 10:40 mile. I've decided to serialize the Colorado report. First installment will be up tomorrow. I know you're all sitting on the edge of your seats in anticipation. :P

  • Wow, that is fast, but isn't fast good? I dunno much about adventure racing and marathon running ... I guess you don't want to go too fast cause then you will tire yourself out by the end. I need to start running or exercising somehow ... gotta be able to keep up with my sis! teehee. (If I tried to run right now, I think I would die after 1/4 of a mile.)

    *waits on the edge of my seat in complete and utter anticipation*

    love ya! hope all is well!

  • I am really enjoying your daily workout posts. You have no idea how often I call my hub over, and say "look at this.. would you look at this?"
    "now look where she's going!!!"

    and he just nods his head again and then shakes his head at me. I find all this marathon training that you're doing utterly fascinating.
    Trouble is, *I'm* not getting in shape just reading about it.
    So it's time for me to get off my duff and get moving again.

    You just might have started a cult! ;)

  • Awww! Thank you so much! That really means a lot to me. I needed inspiration so much at one point (I still do on some days), and I didn't really get it. Or if I did, I didn't do anything about it. It makes me glad that I'm able to inspire other people!

    And I really do think about it when I'm out there running. I don't want to post a lame-ass workout on my blog, so I push myself harder.

    I'll be thinking about it tonight too when I'm out running 5 more miles with my friends for some 'social time'. :D

  • Funny, but I think of my aerobic class as social time too. Man, we're getting old. Remember when we would turn up our noses at veggie pizza? Now I love it!!
